Whether it's investigating how vulnerable coastal nuclear power plants are to climate change and sea level rise, or covering cutting-edge research on greenhouse gas emissions from oil and natural gas development, my reporting covers the intersection of energy and climate change.

Based in New York City, I am a senior science writer for CLIMATE CENTRAL, a nonprofit climate-science news and research organization. Prior to beginning work at Climate Central in 2013, I was based in Colorado for eight years, where I covered environment and energy for daily newspapers in Fort Collins, Grand Junction and Glenwood Springs, and freelanced for Popular Mechanics, New West and High Country News.

During my tenure as a journalist in Colorado, I won numerous Colorado Press Association and Associated Press awards for my reporting. Whether it was the budgetary challenges facing Rocky Mountain National Park, the problems facing Colorado's water supplies amid the state's devastating drought, or answering questions about how much water it takes to hydraulically fracture an oil and gas well, I've investigated it, tweeted it, Facebooked it and posted it. My work is ACCURATE, VARIED and DEEP, reported with DIGITAL, print and SOCIAL MEDIA audiences in mind. 

What CJR says about my work: On June 12, 2013, the Columbia Journalism Review highlighted my data-driven energy reporting at the Fort Collins Coloradoan as a model for how journalists should report on oil and gas. Click here to read the story (PDF)
